    It seems to me that Bruce Forsyth has a problem with the north of England and people from there.
    He always has to make a comment about the north and this week when he was introduceing Kevin Clifton he introduced him as Kevin from Grimsby....WHY.
    He doesn't say Artem from Russia or Robyn from Ipswich so why does he have to mention Grimsby as though it is unusual that someone from the north is able to dance...
    Leave the North alone.

    @ comment 465. I agree with you. Craig was and is always honest with his comments and he brings out his 10 when the couples desire the 10 which is fair. I don't know how many times I have agree with him with comments that he had made about a dance,etc. he acts like a lion but he's a puss cat

    How great to have Craig being honest but relatively pleasant with it. I think he's being much more realistic with his marks too. I nice Craig, who'd have thought it?? Much better though

    @justlovesdancing...but getting worked up is part of the fun! ;O)

    And, we can all pack our bags and forget about it all again till next year, in a few weeks time!

    I agree, about the comedy stuff.
    Comedy routines, are, IMO, great, if the person concerned can make a good account of themselves on the floor and it doesn't become cringeworthy, as I think it did with Anne Widdecombe.

    I think that the Beeb has done well this year, because, even Dave, though I'm not enjoying his performances, is, at the very least, putting an effort in and I totally agree with you regarding Anton Du Beke, it's so nice to see his routines being about the dancing and nothing else, this year.

    Regarding Vanessa, I understand that she's not everyone's cup of tea; I've never found her that offensive, but for some reason, she seems to rub an awful lot of people up the wrong way!

    Rich.

    neorich, completely forgotten Mark. I like him but not sure how far he can go. Agree about Vanessa but she has shown a much nicer side lately, which has surprised me.

    Sorry but "comedy value" leaves me cold and quite cross, as this is, as Craig says, a dancing competition, Have always FF any comedy routines and how nice that Anton does not have to dredge up some soppy routine this year but can actually get on and dance.

    As always, we get quite worked up early on. Such fun!! (Would put smiley face if only I knew where there were!)

    @justlovesdancing..

    I think we're on a pretty safe bet there.
    I do think Vanessa will be in the bottom two, largely because I don't think the public likes her and anything she does in the way of dancing isn't necessarily going to help..

    But, so long as the judges are able to make the decison..she'll survive, this week, at least..

    I can't see her getting through another..

    Dave will survive, I believe on "comedy," value for a while yet..

    Mark, I hope, will survive, not just because I think he actually has some comedy value, but also because I think he's a passably good dancer.

    Rich.

    Enjoyed the show, I video and then watch later, had visitors.

    Like (a lot) Natalie & Artem, like Brendan & Sophie, surprisingly Deborah & Robin. Fiona & Anton,Ashley & Ola, not sure about Ben.

    Do not like Dave & Karen, Rachel, I find her oddly clumsy, I absolutely cannot stand Julian. Vanessa & Suzanna not bothered about.

    Short & to the point comments today because I am a bit late. Have to hope it's goodbye to J&K tonight.
